Get Started with MIPI-CSI Cameras for Embedded Computer Vision

Date: October 16, 2020

Progress in Computer Vision algorithms such as Deep Learning and ever more performant small embedded systems enable many new use cases. Cameras can now be tightly integrated into an embedded system, as interfaces such as Ethernet and USB are too bulky and add a layer of complexity. The most direct way to connect a modern Camera Sensor is via the MIPI CSI-2.

In this webinar video, we show you how the collaboration between e-con Systems and Toradex simplifies the integration of cameras in your products considering both, hardddware and software. We show you the out-of-the-box experience to your first simple OpenCV program and give you tips and tricks along the way.

Additionally, we explain the most important features to be kept in mind when selecting a camera. We utilize the latest i.MX 8QuadMax and i.MX 8M Mini applications processors from NXP® on Toradex’s Apalis and Verdin System on Modules(SoMs). On the software side, we use Torizon and open-source embedded Linux with a focus on the ease-of-use.

Key takeaways:
  • Experience how to go from 0 to your first OpenCV program with MIPI CSI cameras
  • Understand how simple e-con Systems cameras are enabled in Toradex’s embedded Linux offerings
  • Learn what an ISP is and how to select Camera modules for your next project
  • Discover how the NXP i.MX 8QuadMax and NXP i.MX 8M Mini SoMs accelerate product development
